Presque Isle council approves 7th marijuana business, but wonders how many is too many

PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — The Presque Isle City Council voted Wednesday to approve Jonathan Martin for a medical marijuana license, making him the city’s seventh cannabis retailer.

The city’s list of marijuana businesses has expanded rapidly in less than two years, with four operating now and three more on the way.

Councilors first approved the licensing of marijuana shops in January 2020, wanting to tap into the growing industry for its economic benefits. Now the question is whether each of them will get enough business to remain viable.
